I'm praying for you...
I almost didn't post this card, for two reasons. First of all, it's not a very good card. I created it while under heavy sorrow. That's the other reason I almost didn't post it, because I knew if I posted it, I'd need to tell you who it's for.
A friend of ours was on his way to church a few Sundays ago with three of his four sons. His wife and fourth son were at home. The dad went to deal with his phone, lost control of the vehicle, and the crash resulted in the death of his youngest son. The dad and the other two sons were all rushed to three different hospitals. They will recover.
May I just ask you, from the bottom of my heart, to always do two things?
1. Buckle up. The boy who died was the only person in the vehicle not wearing a seat belt.
2. Don't fiddle with your phone while driving. At all. Are your phone calls worth the lives of the people in the car and others on the road? The next time you go to deal with your phone when you are driving, just stop a moment and think about what this dad, a good man, has to deal with every second of every minute of every hour of every day for the rest of his life. Would you like to join him in his nightmare?
